AutomationDirect has added Schmersal safety two-hand control panels to its lineup of safety products. Two-hand control systems are used with a special control monitoring relay, such as the Dold BG5933-22-61-24, and require an operator to use both hands simultaneously when initiating a hazardous operation. This forces an operator to keep their hands on the two-hand control actuator and out of an unsafe spot when a system is performing a hazardous operation. Panels are available in aluminum or plastic and with or without pushbuttons. Replacement pushbuttons are also available. These new Schmersal two hand control panels have a 1-year warranty.
